This is the one I had in the works yesterday. It looks so good!
I did the sanding thing on this one too but it doesn’t show up as well because it’s a lighter colour. It has all the same stuff in though: hoof pick, 3 brushes, 2 sponges & stable rubber.
The girl in the photo (with the camera) is actually me………
I love how colour-coordinated it is, the felt on the brushes is pretty much exactly the same colour as the paint. It has blue sponges because sadly, I don’t have any green sponges to chop up. ;(
Anyways, see ya!
I just finished painting this grooming kit this morning, and I have to say it looks quite sensational.
The above right picture best shows the sanding I did, to make it look like it’s been used a lot already. The black makes the sanding look amazingly real!
Everything inside it (l-r): stable rubber, 2 sponges, 3 brushes (dandy, body & face) and a hoof pick.
I even played dress-up. This was a lot of fun.
I have another one in the works, so look out for that one!
To help relieve the mid-week slump:
Don’t worry, it’s two sleeps until Friday!
Yay! It’s complete!
The aisle is really wide – I did that deliberately because the first incarnation of this stable had a very narrow aisle. I love it – there’s so much space!!
What I also like is the little walls in front of the stalls. They’re the perfect width to put grooming kits and a few extra little items.
These two horses weren’t in the stable before. They moved in because the field was quite crowded. The green-rugged one is Joker and the one with the black plaid rug with red trim is Outlaw.
I really like this new layout, it works much better with the stable’s needs and the wide aisle has plenty of place to put a camera in. 😀
I’ve had this HUUUUUUGE stable for my horses for quite a while and I designed it so it had four, gigantic stalls.
Then, along comes the field (from last post) but it was quite cramped.
Sooooo…….. to free up more room in the field, my solution was to rip up all the inner walls of the stable, chop some of them into thirds and make six stalls (that were considerably smaller) as well as a wider aisle down the centre. This means I can balance out the number of horses inside and outside.
Each stall has a chain stall guard, will have food, water & bedding, and the four corner stables have a Dutch (?) door at the back as well.
Stay tuned for the finished stable!
